The user enters a profile and, after the login to access the app, he can offer a job and can search for the jobs available in a specific area. In fact, this app is equipped with a geolocation system and the job offers are displayed on a map. Moreover, this apps foresees a notification system that delivers in real time messages about the jobs offers/demand.

The company aims to test the app in a city with high student population, thus of potential odd-job providers, and a heightened demand for garden works and babysitting. After the test, the company intends to complete the Android app development and to perform the development of an IoS app version. The stage one also includes the design of web marketing activities. Stage two: this stage includes the implementation of the web marketing activities and extension of the service to other categories of workers in addition to babysitting and gardeners.
